mitt romney. (vo) she's joy behar. >>and the best part is that current will let me say anything. what the hell were they thinking? ♪ >> announcer: broadcasting across the nation on your radio, and on current tv this is the "bill press show." >> bill: well a belated happy st. patrick's day. hope you celebrated and are ready to go with a whole new busy week here in our nation's capitol. president obama headed off to the middle east. good morning, everybody, what do you say, monday march 18th. so good to see you today, yep, hope you did have a good weekend and are ready to go today here on a monday morning. it is the "full court press," we're coming to you live on current tv, on your local progressive talk radio accusation, and on sirius xm this hour only. we'll let you know the news here from our nation's capitol. we'll tell you what is going on here around the country and around the globe, and open up our phones and our social media so you can tell us what it all means to you and your family. 866-55-press is our number. on twitter it's simply @bpshow. more and mor
his opponent. the romney people allowed obama to define romney. this was rather than romney defining romney, and that is why it is important for republicans to look back and say, what did we do wrong? the idea that the republican party is in some terrible shape -- >> you do not buy that? >> certainly i do not buy that. i have seen terrible shape. i remember watergate, i remember when the 13% of americans identified themselves as republicans, and the national chairman appointed people to see if we should change the name of the party. for 40 years, the most number of republicans in the house was 192. today we have 230 something, and it is absolutely right to figure out what you did wrong, and the obama people outperformed republicans in a number of ways. the idea that we are on the brink of going out of business is overstated. >> do you think that there is with the report that the chairman put together and if the republican party is willing to commit to reach out, is that the answer to try to expand the party by paying people to put operatives out there, to make that connection, to loo
which does not allow in his opinion for any form of gun control whatsoever. he makes mitt romney look looks michael due dukakis. >> i paint in primary colors. >> these are details. >> they are details i would just as soon ignore. on some of those fronts. but, again, overall, the primary message that he delivers is less government at home and restraint abroad which you know what? the republican party has been reckless over the past decade. we have paid a lot for it with our philosophy. and so i think he's a good symbol like his father. listen. i voted for his father in the republican primary in 2012. did i agree with what he said about 9/11? >> god, i hope not. >> absolutely not. there are a lot of things that rand paul said i think are way out there and i disagree with, but the core issue of small government at home and restrained foreign policy abroad, i will -- >> not a realistic setting. >> people for symbolic purposes. >> joe doesn't like paper money either. he wants to get rid of the dollar bill. >> we are into a bartering system at the scarborough house. >> you got a problem say
romney went shopping for some stores in midtown. it's great to be here this evening in the vast magnificent hilton ballroom, or what mitt romney would call a little fixer-upp fixer-upper. >> you got to admit, no matter what side of the line you sit on, those are pretty funny. those are more than just funny lines. my guest wrote an op-ed for cnn.com on obama's "weaponized wit." obama didn't invent the political jab, but the president has taken the art form to a whole other level to take on rivals. dean's live for us in new york. dean, what is it? why do you think obama's become such a good
-huh. >> the brothers plan to have the transplant at oakland's children's hospital in mid- april. >>> mitt romney is set to host a retreat in utah this summer. according to reports the former republican presidential candidate has sent out e-mail invitations to a number of politicians, business leaders, and donors. the cost of attending the sefntdz 5,000. the retreat is sponsored by romney's son's investment firm. it is said to give business executives and politicians a chance to network with each other. >>> bo obama is a wanted dog. let me show you some video posted on youtube. this is from the oregon humane society. in it, one of their dogs, a golden doodle named ramona asked bo to be her date to the society's annual doggy dash fund-raiser. it is being held in may. the humane society is also asking bo to serve as grand marshal for that event. so far no word back from bo or the white house. >>> this afternoon san francisco zoo's newest tiger cub is making her first public appearance. she has yet to be named. she is daughter to leanne and larry. today and tomorrow she is going to be on display in the zoo
a rick perry in texas and ideally maybe even a governor romney in massachusetts. they deal across the aisle. they deal with practical issues. they can help the party sort of see where the country is going and move ahead in a practical matter and take credit for it if the party is smart enough to take advantage of that. >> eroll, you're making the point. practicality, bipartisan thinking, nonideological thinking is the reason people elect republican governors so easily. they don't have to make a big ideological choice. there you have republican governor kasich, who, again, i say i like, giving a nonideological answer. i haven't thought much about it but, yeah, civil union sounds fine to me. it's a reasonable answer for a guy who hasn't given much thought to something. thank you. >>> up next, chris christie meets the press, the third grade press. literally. this is "hardball," the place for politics. [ female announcer ] your smile. like other precious things that start off white, it yellows over time. fact is, when it comes to your smile, if you're not whitening, you're yellowing.
colbert bush and republicans, $500,000, spending face time with top republicans, mitt romney setting up a summit for his son tag's investment fund. paul rain and chris christie may also attend. >>> and for the supreme court, a block of young people standing against same-sex marriage. one of those opponents will join me up next. >>> check your numbers. powerball winning ticket. drawn last night. are you holding a $338 million jackpot ticket? we'll tell you. you're watching msnbc. the place for politics.

with the palestinians and broker an apology over a commando raid. he didn't win the presidency but mitt romney plans to have a say. he's asking political and business leaders to a four-day retreat in utah in june. the idea, look for solutions to the country's problems. romney says he wants to stay engaged in public policy. among those invited are new jersey governor chris christie and house budget chairman congressman paul ryan. >>> 149 airport control towers around the nation are set to close because of spending cuts. the faa says it is targeting low to medium traffic airports. closures could also effect big airports causing delays of as much as 90 minutes. i asked a former air marshal and union president representing air traffic controllers if this would affect air safety. >> there's no concerns for the public as far as safety is concerned. i believe with these closures we'll have somewhere between 150,000 flights that take off and land per year. to give you an idea of what the percentage is, there's more than 26,000 flights that take off and land every day. you are talking 150,000 throughout the
in the u.s. campaign where netanyahu more or less endorsed mitt romney for president. how much of the loathe that is coming from b.b. towards our president is kind of him trying to make sure that he has not done long-term damage to the relationship in that direction? we know what barack obama's objectives here are but it it seems to me netanyahu is making up for any hurt feelings he did over last summer. >> absolutely. there is a political balance here. if you can see the see-saw right now. netanyahu is weaker than re-elected barack obama. they need each other. but israel needs the u.s. to have its back, both because of syria, the civil war next door, the possibility of chemical weapons which would be, as the president said, a real game-changer, though, i'm told that they have no evidence that chemical weapons were used by the regime. the president is very clear that it would not have been used by the opposition. that was fallacious argument from the regime but no hard evidence they were used. if it were used, it would be a game-changer. but israel needs the u.s. for iran and t
on to the general elechblgs i tell you that is a river of red down there, where romney won that district by 18%. so -- >> a river of red? >> a great candidate. but at the end of the day. we are going to find out whether that moral comp nas got high wire, all right republican party around base continue to overlook that? >> i can't think of a democratic candidate who had the nerve to go ask his ex-wife to run his campaign. >> that's true. that's different kind of gutsy. i'm saying gutsy, because i'm on cable in the afternoon. not premium. a different kind of gutsy. >> the democratic candidate contributed to mark sanford in the past. this is really going to be a dicy one if he is successful next tuesday a week. >> stay in the south here for second. kentuckiens in the spotlight once again. this week, senator rand paul's rise to gop fame and of course, ashley judd. according to abc news here, judd apparently has the support of former president bill clinton. and news reported friday that bill clinton encouraged judd to e he were the race and promised he would help her. the report said former president cl
will recall by the last election by a three-to-one margin republicans lost to hispanic voters, mitt romney lost to hispanic voters. so they understand it's in their self-interest to get something done. so you kind of see everything moving in that direction. >> and the potential stumbling block? >> of course. there are stumbling blocks. look, it depends on what that pathway leads to. does it lead to citizenship? does it lead to some kind of legal status? and how can you ensure people that the border is secure first? you know, everybody -- republicans i talk to go back to the days when ronald reagan passed immigration reform. and the problem with that everyone agrees was that the borders were not secure first. so republicans are nervous that that could happen again. and they want to make sure that doesn't occur. there's also another stumbling block in the guest worker program. how do you provide for guest workers to come into this country? that's an issue for democrats in particular. so there are stumbling blocks that would have been done years ago. but again political self-interest is at st
or the subtitle of the book depending on who won. so if it had been mitt romney we would have had books that said well we are in ms. we have a chance now was getting out of it but a boy we have a lot of work to do. here is what we need to do. and the pivot for barack obama winning their reelection as while we are in a mess and it's only going to get worse from here. >> a little publishing in sight. thank you. nice to see you. >> here is a look at upcoming book fairs and festivals happening around the country.
shot up much higher when he was chosen as mitt romney's running mate and now out of the spotlight. >> this story quotes dan senor. for someone who was the nominee, as the story says, the "it" boy, younger face of the republican party, paul ryan has perhaps deliberately been out of the national plilt conversation because he has a busy day job. not only is he chairman of the budget committee with a huge job but been a wing man to speaker boehner even though not a formal member of the top part of membership. ryan has consulted on everything that matters. and has become the tea party whisperer for leadership and the person conservatives trust and he tries to market leadership packages to the conservatives. >> i guess disappearing so far, he hasn't been out nationally as much as he was but not disappearing behind the scenes. >> tuesday night he was told he would not be vice president and wednesday morning, john boehner called him up and said i need you in the middle of the washington. there is no precedent for something coming off a national ticket and going right back into congress wi
the ann romney stop it. >> ann: stop it! stop it! this is hard. >> i hate to ask sort of a question that's hanging out there but was she hot? >> stephanie: yeah, she was attractive. but i have family values. i still want to get married. >> you don't want to get your rocks off every once in awhile. >> mile high club opportunity here. with a high corruption value. >> stephanie: you know that's what was happening jim. if she was like -- >> if she said this is hard -- that might have been an indication of something else going on. >> stephanie: i'm not a woman. >> i've got to read you so you can get a full flavor of the insanity of those opposing gay marriage. here is the prayer that we were asked to pray. >> stephanie: take your organ out. >> arguing on behalf of same-sex marriage present their argument in an unconvincing way. [ scooby-doo's "huh?" ] may they fail to gain traction in the minds of the justices. that's what we're supposed to -- >> stephanie: eat my gravel soup bitch. >> i know. >> stephanie: i'm sure ted olson will muck that up. wow. that's nice. >> they're praying for inepti
challenges with respect to the economy and the budget. governor romney did the same thing. and both of them said the american people faced a very important and fundamental choice. and the american people chose. they chose to support president obama's vision of accelerating economic growth, putting more people back to work, taking a shared responsibility approach to our long-term deficits so we bring them down in a balanced smart way and they rejected the idea that we're going to move the economy forward by giving windfall tax cuts to the very wealthiest in the country and the benefits of that would trickle down and lift everybody up. they rejected that lopsided approach that balance the budgets on the backs of everybody but the folks at the very top. balance the budget on the backs of our kids' education by slashing important investments. in that category of spending we make these important investments for our country and our future, they double the cut from the sequester. so those are our investments in our kids' education. those are our investments in science and research to help power ou
rucker was white house correspondent for and he coveredt" the romney campaign and has been there since 2005. he also covered the obama transition. we talked about what was happening in colorado and what was signed into law there. the governor and other western democrats -- how important are they in terms of leading the charge to change the conversation about the gun control debate? guest: they are very important. western democrats have been some of the biggest defenders on gun rights that have not engaged a conversation on gun control measures. the fact that they are talking about it, and the governor of colorado has signed into law these measures is critical. it is not solely driven by people like joe biden and bloomberg and the northeastern establishment. they are trying to get geographical diversity. that is why joe manchin is a player. it also explains why the democrats in the senate have gone after tom coburn, a republican from oklahoma, who has been most open to a background check bill and he has been negotiating with chuck schumer from new york. it is not clear if he will actual
and governor romney, preached from coast to coast, advertised, campaigned, and all of a sudden it was rejected by the american public overwhelmingly. the president was comfortably re-elected and more democratic senators added who support this effort in the house of representatives, not only did we gain seats, but more than a million voters more voted for democrats than republicans. so you would think that this would be put to rest, but it is important for people to know that it is still a viable option as far as our republican friends are concerned. and it's unfortunate, because we are making some progress in reforming the health care system, not by turning our back on medicare, not by transferring the risk and responsibility to seniors and most vulnerable, but by making it more efficient, by taking some of the experiments that we have done in my home state of oregon, and as you well know, there are some health care systems in california that have already found ways to reward value over volume, to be able to extend care and do so more efficiently and squeeze the approximately one-third to 40%
candidates, president obama, governor romney, agreed on one thing and that was that the people of this country faced a fundamental choice in the direction we were going to take. and the american people voted and they resoundedly rejected the approach that is now taken once again for the third year in a row in this republican budget. this budget, as we've heard over the last couple days, fails on a number of counts. number one, it adopts the european style austerity approach that we've seen slow down economies in many parts of europe. we should instead be focusing on job growth and putting people back to work rather than a budget like this budget which will result in 750,000 fewer americans working by the end of this year. that's according to the independent nonpartisan congressional budget office. and it will result in more than two million fewer people working next year. it also fails the test of taking a balanced approach. because it is founded on the failed idea that combiffing another round of tax cuts to people at the very high end of the income scale will somehow trickle
former presidential candidate mitt romney. >> i will repeal obama care. and i'll stop it in its tracks on day one. >> reporter: the gop budget that passed the republican controlled house also includes a repeal of obama care. congresswoman michele bachmann warned the health care law is a killer. >> let's repeal this failure before it literally kills women, kills children, kills senior citizens. let's not do that. >> but it seems it is the law that can't be killed almost like the legislative equivalent of kenny from south park. >> they killed kenny! >> reporter: but some republicans outside of washington have a different take. a slew of high profile gop governors recently accepted the law's massive expansion of the medicaid program for the poor into their states. the law's defenders say other popular provisions go into effect next year such as the ban on insurers discriminating against patients with preex-conditions. and new insurance exchange market places where people can shop for coverage. the white house says the repealers ignore that. >> that seems at some point to be time not well
as mitt romney's etch a sketch did. yesterday when bloomberg was interviewed, he said that this was a way for him to educate people and in these red states where i live in south georgia, we don't need the education from michael bloomberg about our guns, rights to guns. most are in favor of some type of backgrund checks. in georgia, to have a carry permit, you have one. the devil is in the details. i'm not confident in eric holder and the department of justice to implement laws, new laws on the books when he won't even enforce the current gun laws on the books. >> so does patrick have something here that mayor bloomberg's reputation as a guy who runs a nanny state or tries to, does he really have any sway over people who are on the fence? >> this is a political red herring. oh, this week it's michael bloomberg and it used to be nancy pelosi and it used to be barack obama. you can use all the scary liberal names, but the reality on the ground, police who don't tend to vote democratic, even police are in favor of what the mayors are suggesting. michael bloomberg maying t be t face, but he's
these debates were destructive to the eventual nominee, mitt romney. they wanted to reform that. >> i think our debate calendar needs to be shrunk. i think we had way too many debates, candidates slicing and dicing each other. i think they had to wait too long to get to the convention. i'm calling for a convention in june or july. >> and there you have it. reince preibus talking about moving up their convention. he's talking about doing that now at the beginning of the summer. it will greatly alter what we're used to in seeing how a presidential campaign operates. >> will front-load the whole process, giving us a few months of intense, intense campaigning. nice to see you this morning. thanks for coming in. >>> later on "starting point" we'll talk about the republican blueprint with ari fleischer. also cnn's jake tapper, whoegs new show "the lead" launches this afternoon at 4:00 eastern time on cnn. he'll be on the show at 8:00 talking about the republican plan. >>> listen up. calling all bracketologists, the field for ncaa men's field is set and the team that won it all a year ago is not even
on the middle class. this is consistent with what the romney ryan ticket said on the campaign trail last fall. the same issue where they dodged, assembled, and ignored the perfectly reasonable question how is it possible? six months later it's back in the budget but there's still -- but there still is no answer. during the last 40 years there have been only four budgets without deficits. the last three clinton budgets and the one that george bush inherited from bill clinton. in each case taxes as a percentage of the total economy were over 20%. in this republican fantasy land budgets are balanced with revenues at 19% of the economy, yet meeting the needs of 78 million more seniors and a infrastructure deficit that is growing as america is falling apart. clearly this is not remotely possible if we are going to enjoy anything like our current quality of life. there is a real world intersection of budget saving opportunities with potential areas of agreement. health care reform is one. but not just by shifting the burden to seniors and disabled as the republicans propose in their fantasy budget.
to revenue. again, we heard from governor romney and others last year that there are about $4 trillion in these disers to -- distortions and preferences in the tax code that help very wealthy people. and what we say is we should get out some of that clutter, some of those preferences and use some of that to help reduce the deficit. and we say at the same time when u do tax reform, don't touch middle-income taxpayers and when we asked our republican colleagues to give us that assurance in the form of an amendment in the budget committee, they all voted no. so, yes, we think that you can eliminate some of the tax breaks and preferences that mr. mcclintock just talked about, but you can use some of them to reduce the deficit. but the republican budget won't use one dime of those to help reduce the deficit. i now yield two minutes to the gentleman from washington state who is both on the budget committee and on the ways and means committee, mr. mcdermott. the chair: the gentleman from washington is recognized for two minutes. without objection, so ordered. mr. mcdermott: mr. chairman, i as
